Competition: National League
Market: Braintree to win against Grimsby
Odds: 7/2 @ Betfair
Braintree Town travel to Blundell Park to face Grimsby Town in the first leg of the National League semi-final playoffs, and could well pick up a win over the Mariners to all but seal their place in the playoffs final given their superior form in recent weeks.
Grimsby Town have ended the season poorly so their preparations haven’t been ideal for such a big game. They have suffered consecutive league defeats ahead of Thursday’s clash, while picking up just one win from their last six in the division.
As for Braintree, the visitors are coming off the back of four consecutive league wins, and have won three on the bounce away from home. And with Grimsby having lost back-to-back home games, they are big underdogs to get a result tonight.
There’s still a second leg to play, but Braintree could put one foot in the final if they can get a result on this week. They will fancy their chance of winning at home, but they could well edge a result in the away leg at Blundell Park to make their task of reaching the final all the more easier.
Betfair are giving odds of 7/2 for Braintree to win against Grimsby on Thursday night to boost their hopes of making the National League playoff final.
